Is This The Reason Why You Should Swap To A Small Energy Supplier?

I’ve just been reading this article in The Times about the new energy supplier Ovo.

This is the paragraph, that caught my eye.

Ovo offers only two tariffs and has one structural advantage over its bigger rivals: in common with fellow start-ups such as Ecotricity and First Utility, it doesn’t have to put a government- mandated “green levy” on consumers’ bills because it has fewer than 250,000 customers. That means its customers are exempt from an average surcharge of £112 a year.

So it would seem that by changing to a small supplier, you’ll save over a hundred pounds a year. Obviously, if your chosen small supplier gets bigger than 250,000 customers, you’ll need to change to another small one.

Incidentally, I’m not in favour of green levies, as insulating  houses is the responsibility of the property owner and wind turbines that of the builders! Not me!

This all sounds a good deal to me. I shall be investigating! Especially, as the fixed price deal with my current supplier runs out next year.
